I saw this response, I originally started the post.

I gave up on Beagle. As Hangdog42 said this post is really old - try a Google. I'm not trying to be in any way offensive here.

I'm now longer sure Beagle is important, in the latest Linux distros that I've used, I've always de-activated it. It simply consumes to many resources.

there's now a FAQ about symbolic links which are actually not inspected.

I've just started using beagles, and I don't know when you stopped using it; however, I find it really good, and basically it does not eat any resource when I'm working (it is set to eat some more when the computer is idle).

Two things really. First, things change fast in Linux. What was true almost five years ago has almost certainly changed. A lot. Second, in threads this old it is not uncommon for the participants to no longer frequent LQ, so if you did have a question, it may never get much attention. The fact is threads with a lot of replies tend to get less attention than new ones.
